Heart Attack

Heart attacks occur as a result of a blocked heart artery.  Heart attacks often have warning signs including:

  • Chest discomfort
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea with or without vomiting
  • Arm, neck, or jaw discomfort
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Upper back pain
  • Unusual fatigue
  • Breaking out in a cold sweat

If you or a loved one experience any of these symptoms, call 911 so that life saving treatment can begin immediately.  We strongly encourage you to learn more about recognizing the warning signs and preventing heart attacks.  To learn more about Women’s Heart Health, click here.
